Xenia Pestova Bennett: Chamber Music for Cats

Our friend Xenia Pestova Bennett, whose music repertoire has been enjoyed by many at Lakeside Arts, has released her latest EP, entitled Atonal Electronic Chamber Music for Cats. We are delighted to share two pieces from her album's tracklist alongside a wonderful animation by Nick Romero.

Enjoy the unique sounds of electronic and the exploration of vintage synthesizers in two tracks below Duetto and The Future.

Quotation mark 

Spring time. Three period instruments from the turn of the century: Yamaha CS1X, Korg MonoSynth 2000, MicroKorg Synth Vocoder ... I’m not playing the instruments, they are playing themselves, they are playing me and there is no forcing or fighting them. Faded-photograph sunshine sounds of ’90s electronica, caramelised sweetened condensed milk, the beach, rage, DIY chamber music for cats. Then, it stops: the end of nostalgia and the end of the world as you know it. We are getting old and the sounds have lost their innocence.

Thank you to Ed (Teddy) Bennett, Michael Keeney and Hannah Peel for the synth love."
